    Tabloid titan Jimmy Breslin — the cigar-chomping, hard-nosed newspaperman who won the Pulitzer Prize for his Daily News’ columns championing ordinary New Yorkers — has died, according to two friends of his family. He was 86. The cause of death was not immediately released. The curmudgeonly ink-stained wretch — whose velvety and witty writing style uplifted the downtrodden and eviscerated the scoundrels — crafted scores of columns for The News, Newsday, the New York Herald Tribune and New York Journal American.

    Adam Carolla is definitely not a fan of the government. Whether he’s sitting down with Reason Magazine to rant, or going off on Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), he’s made it clear that he wants to be left alone. Carolla, the host of the Adam Carolla Show (which is a podcast available on iTunes), and former host of “The Man Show,” “Crankyankers” and “Loveline,” showed his detest for unions with a profanity laced tirade, NSFW language after the jump.

    CARSON CITY – Long-time Republican political operative Sig Rogich said today that Sarah Palin is not a viable candidate for president in 2012. Rogich, who was involved in the campaigns of Ronald Reagan and both Bush presidents, said Palin, a Tea Party favorite and former Republican Alaska governor, is unelectable. “I’m not overly enamored with (Palin),” he said. “As a candidate nationwide I don’t think she is electable for a presidency, and I think that over time you will see reasons why,” Rogich said. Rogich made his comments in an interview on the Nevada NewsMakers television program. Rogich said he...

    The laughter has definitely gone out of Joe Piscopo's marriage now that the former "Saturday Night Live" star and wife Kimberly are divorcing. A Hunterdon County (N.J.) Family Court judge issued temporary restraining orders to both spouses on Monday after they each alleged domestic abuse. Kimberly filed for divorce on July 10, but the couple tried to continue living together in the Piscopo mansion. That is, until last weekend, when, after one particularly ugly scene, Kimberly sought an emergency order of protection. After a North Hunterdon Municipal Court judge ruled the Vegas-bound actor was not an immediate threat, Joe got...

    The charm-deficient Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. begins his MSNBC show tonight at 9 PM. The eternally bow-tied Chatworth Osborne, Jr. has spent his entire career trying to convince folks that even though he thinks of himself a conservative, he himself is utterly offended by real conservatives since he considers himself so much better than them. Fortunately for Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. there has been a market for liberal networks to hire self-styled conservatives with repulsive personalities so that whatever their views, they would be sure to turn off the average viewer.
